Hardware-Audio-Player: Prisma Megamix Music Card available
The "Prisma Megamix Music Card", which was originally advertised using the slightly misleading term 'sound card', is now available at Amigakit. Thanks to a built-in hardware decoder, the card plays various music formats (e.g. MP2, MP3, WMA, OGG) without putting stress on the Amiga's CPU.. It has both a Zorro and a Clockport interface. A properly isolated version that can be used in the original Amiga 1200 desktop case is said to be "coming soon".

Features:
  • Clockport and Zorro II interfaces (if operated in Zorro II slot, clockport can be used for compatible add-on cards)
  • Compatible with Amiga A1200 T, A2000, A3000, A4000, A4000T
  • Based on VS1063 chip
  • Playback of wide range of formats: MP2, MP3, WMA, OGG, LC-AAC, HE-AAC, FLAC, ALAC, IMA ADPCM, G.711 u-law, G.711 a-law, G.722, and WAV PCM formats
  • Pass through port for Paula mixing. Paula mixing is automatically activated by hardware, no software interaction needed
  • CDDA header
  • MHI support for use with MHI compatible software such as AmigaAmp
  • can be expanded by optional digital module S/PDIF
You can get further information in wiki.amiga.org/prisma. (cg) (Translation: dr)

Training version of RESHOOT shows level of complexity of the game
Richard L÷wenstein's (e.g. 'Amiga Joker') shoot'em up RESHOOT can be purchased on CD for some months. A few days ago the scene group Flashtro released a "training version", which provides a training mode as well as an autofire function requested by many users.

The archive released by Flashtro only contains the modified executable file. The original game data were required in order to play the game - therefore L÷wenstein did not raise objections regarding the distribution - on one condition: The training mode had to be removed (it spoils the fun) which Flashtro met.

At first glance this condition seems to be strange - but a video, also published by Flashtro, which shows a "longplay" of RESHOOT with atraining mode enabled, might explain that: The game, which is sold for 36 Euro, only has one single level which can be completed in less than 10 minutes. Afterwards the level restarts with an increased difficulty ("insane"). (cg) (Translation: dr)
